Dominick "Dom" DeRegis

 

 After the third annual Columbus Day Parade, October 9, 2005 , Dominick DeRegis was one of five honorees named to the North Side Walk of Honor. Names of the recipients will be inscribed on granite plaques and new honorees will be added every year.  

Dom, Class of 1950, was one of North High's most talented and versatile athletes.  He was a four sport athlete, lettering in  football, track, baseball and basketball, excelling in baseball and basketball.  Dom was named to the First Team All-City Basketball Team in 1949.  In 1950 he attained the rare distinction of being named to All-City Teams in three different sports.   He was First-Team Baseball and Basketball and All-City honorable mention in football, having played only 4 games during the season before breaking his wrist in the 4th game.

His great athletic career at North included three championships:  the 1948 Basketball Playoff Championship, the 1949 Basketball Championship, and the 1950 All- City Baseball Championship. 

 Upon graduation Dom chose to attend college locally to play basketball and baseball at LeMoyne College for the legendary Tom Niland rather than accept a Brooklyn Dodger offer to play professional baseball.

Dom's successes broadened to include a stellar fast pitch softball career.   In 1961 at McArthur Stadium, in a game against The King and His Court, he hit a  home run  off the legendary softball pitcher Eddie Feiner.  In 1974, he was inducted into the New York State Softball Hall of Fame.

Additionally he served as Basketball and Baseball Coach for the youth of St. Peters Church.  He also coached two seasons at CCBI..  In 1973, he served as President of the Salem Hyde Little League.  His active sports career spanned over 20 years.

 On this special occasion, North High teammates, classmates, and "Windy Hillers" all ,wish you well and congratulate you and your family.

Tante Salute!
